Ms Goehring: Mr. Speaker, yesterday in the House the minister claimed he was a huge supporter and fan of Alberta artists and made ridiculous claims that the opposition would like to put an end to art in the province. Being a fellow fan and supporter of the arts myself, as the minister claims to be, I wanted to ask my colleague and fellow appreciator of art about some of his favourite local musicians, artists, performers, and professionals so we can make sure he’s really being honest. To the minister: who are your three favourite Alberta musicians? [interjections]
The Speaker: Order. Order. [interjections] Order. While I appreciate that the opposition might like the personal opinion of the minister, I find it very difficult to find any remotely close piece of government business that has to do with what he might listen to on the radio, but if you’d like to ask, he’s welcome to answer. He’s welcome to do so.
Mr. Orr: Yeah. Mr. Speaker, I think all I should refer to is that it seems to me like the members opposite have become infected, not with COVID-19 but with a dystopian cognitive dissonance.
